Thank-you to everyone who came to support our students at the Christmas concert. I think we can all agree they did an absolutely tremendous job of it!

As usual, I recorded the concert (audio only) . Please note that due to SD62 privacy regulations, I am unable to share the narration parts online.

Merry Christmas, and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!
